Fannie and Freddie getting tougher on deadlines to perform on short sales.

DSnews just sent this headline to me:

Wells Fargo Puts a Stop to Short Sale Extensions

Wells Fargo will no longer delay foreclosure proceedings in hopes that a short sale deal will come through. At the requests of its mortgage investors, including Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the bank has stopped granting extensions for distressed homeowners to complete short sales. Going forward, borrowers must close on short sales by the date quoted in their approval letter. The policy change will allow the bank's foreclosure proceedings to advance, even if a short sale is already in negotiation.
